The Cotinus Around My Farm

Smoke bushes, Cotinus, are among my favorite of small trees - they have superlative color, appealing form, and look excellent in the gardens.

I always try to incorporate unique and interesting plantings into all my gardens. I have many smoke bushes around my Bedford, New York farm - in the sunken garden behind my Summer House, around my pool, in the beds outside my Tenant House, where my daughter and grandchildren stay when they visit, and near the front entrance to the property, where family and friends can see their beauty right away.

All the smoke bushes are looking so gorgeous and lush - enjoy these photos.
